The local atomic structure evolution above and below the melting point (Tm) is important to understand the nature of metallic glasses. The structures above and below Tm have been simulated using ab-initial molecular dynamic method. The detailed structure changes regarding to the cluster, interconnecting-zone and free volume with decreasing the temperature have been quantitatively analyzed based on the tight-bond cluster model. Electronic structure reflecting bonding properties among atoms is also analyzed by calculating density of states (DOSs). The results help us to further understand why elements influence the glass formation significantly.
